Taste profile from the winemaker: "Lively aromas and flavors of lime, peach, honeysuckle and fresh minerals. The wine’s vibrancy is complemented by a supple, oily texture, and punctuated by a rich taste of figs and toasted nuts in the finish."

ABC Wines review: This wine has a light citrus scent with subtle floral high notes. The palate is quite spicy, of medium body, with relatively little distinguishing fruit flavor. It has a nice, pleasing if otherwise unmemorable finish. A good wine, priced right, for a light lunch or a salad of fresh, crisp greens. Our score: Average.
